Instead of sweet potatoes, try equally starchy, carotene-rich butternut squash for your next mash. A food processor will get the mixture silky smooth. You can also change the profile by swapping maple syrup and fresh ginger for a little ground cinnamon and curry powder or minced fresh sage and grated Parmesan cheese.

How to Make It

Bring a large saucepan filled with water to a boil. Add butternut squash; cook 10 minutes or until tender. Drain. Place cubed peeled buttenut squash in a food processor with pure maple syrup, unsalted butter, grated peeled fresh ginger, kosher salt, black pepper, and grated garlic clove; process until smooth. Top with roasted unsalted pumpkin seed kernels.
